A Sierra Vista woman purchased a new purse from Walmart and got a little more than she bargained for.
Inside the purse, she found a note from what she thinks is a Chinese “prisoner” pleading for help.
The note says that the person is being forced to work 14 hours a day and being held captive. They also went on to say that they are not getting medical treatment or adequate food.
She had the note translated three times just to make sure no one was pulling her leg about what it said. There is definitely someone oversees who is being forced to work under abusive conditions and they are seeking help.
The woman who found the letter is frustrated as she is not able to help the person who wrote the letter, but she is happy to get the message out there. She is hoping that someone who can help will see the letter and do their best to rectify the situation.
Similar letters have been found and traced back to stores, like K-mart, in the past.
A Sierra Vista woman says she believes she found a note from a Chinese “prisoner” pleading for help, claiming he or she was being forced to work under abusive conditions. The woman said the purse was bought at a Wal-Mart. After she found the note, written in Chinese, the woman had the note translated three times to be certain it was correct.
The note’s author said he or she is a prisoner in China, and forced to work about 14 hours a day with little food or medical attention. Similar letters to the one the Sierra Vista woman had translated have been traced back to stores such as K-Mart in the past. The woman said she doesn’t have the means to help the prisoner, but hopes something comes out of sharing the note.
